A ladies’ bowmaker held at Long Ashton Golf Club proved to be a great success with 96 golfers taking part.

The ladies open bowmaker held at Long Ashton was a great success with 96 entrants and 68 of those being visitors.

The overall winners were Theresa Russell, Sharon Crawford and Jan Ellis, from Long Ashton. The winners of the visitors’ teams were Pam Collins, Helen Clements and Fiona Carlisle, from Cotswold Hills.

Big thanks go to Coombe Garage Pro Tyres in Nailsea for sponsoring this event meaning even more prizes. It was great to have so many volunteers and especially lots of men helping with starting and the halfway house, with great organisation by the ladies’ vice-captain Roz Hughes.

The seniors held the Bennett Cup, with 129 taking part and David Whitfield emerging the winner with 41 points.

The Bennett Cup is a Stableford competition with prizes in three divisions for both home and away competitors.

Thus, in Division 1, the winner of the home prize was Peter Millet (40) and of the away prize, Colin Grindle of Forest Hills (37). In Division 2, the home winner was next year’s seniors’ captain, Arthur Piercy (39) and away winner, Tony Evans of Cradoc (38). In Division 3, the home winner was Jim Limerick (38) and away winner, Arthur Clifton (32).

Nearest the pin on the 13th hole was won by Peter Watson of Puckrup Hall, the prize being sponsored by C the World, travel specialists.

The organisers are grateful to all those that helped on the day, including the starters, ball spotters, admin team, kitchen and bar staff, secretaries and the pro shop. Also thanks go to James and his greenstaff.

Thanks also go to C the World and AMA Waterways, travel specialists, for supplying nourishment at the halfway house.
